  • what is the point in asking if you already took it?
    you need to ask your doctor BEFORE you take medicine REGARDLESS of what medicine it is.
    not after the fact.

  • I was told Tylenol, PLAIN Sudafed, PLAIN Robitussin (not DM or CF), and tums were safe. However, it's been 5 years since I've had a baby, so I'm sure that's all changed by now!

  • Ask your OB first, they should have a list for you.

  • My daughters only take Tylenol and Tums. Their doctors tell them it is not safe to take anything else, unless absolutely necessary, and then he gives them something, nothing over the counter.
